Does Your Home Have A Radon Problem?
Radon, a colorless and odorless gas, is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers – causing an estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year. In an effort to alert homeowners, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated January as National Radon Action Month.
Radon is a naturally-occurring by-product of the breakdown of uranium in soil, rocks and water. Since air pressure in your home is generally lower than the pressure in the surrounding soil, your home acts like a vacuum and draws radon gas in through the cracks in the foundation and other openings. Radon may also be present in your water source and can be released into the air when the water is used for household purposes such as showering, or ingested when drinking. As a result, the EPA and the Surgeon General both recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.
Fortunately, it’s easy to test your home. Radon test kits can be obtained through the mail and at some hardware stores. It’s also possible to contact a certified radon specialist like Above & Beyond Home Inspector to test your home for you. Give us a call today to book an appointment.

A Typical Inspection
To get the most accurate results, it’s always best to have your home tested for radon by a professional. The qualified inspectors at Above & Beyond Home Inspector know exactly where to place the radon device to get the best results, and can inspect the rest of your home for problem spots where radon can seep in.
Our preferred testing method is Continuous Radon Tests, which are conducted through devices that measure the concentration of radon over a period of time – typically 48 hours (about 2 days). Our inspectors will place one or multiple devices around your home strategically, based on the layout of your property. The device will monitor the radon levels over 48 hours while reducing or eliminating interference or “measurement noise” that can result in false results. After the 48 hours, our team will analyze the results and provide you with a report based on the measurements taken.
Not only do we conduct air and water radon tests for you, as your one-stop home inspection team we offer a full home inspection and all other ancillary services to give you a complete picture of your home. Call us today for an appointment.
